Nashville, TN- Viewers worldwide will have several chances to tune in and see beloved bluegrass band The Grascals on television in July. The band will be out and about promoting their new Rounder Records album Keep On Walkin’ which hits stores July 15. Kicking off their appearances is CMT’s Southern Fried BBQ on July 4. The Grascals will appear on the program all day with host Hazel Smith, Luke Bryan and more. The following day, July 5, wake up with the boys as they perform live in New York on the CBS Saturday Early Show and get cooking that night from 5-8 PM ET when they appear on CMT’s Southern Fried Flicks with Hazel Smith. The Grascals will also return to New York on July 18 for a performance on Fox and Friends. After winning the International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Emerging Artist of the Year award in 2005, The Grascals earned the IBMA Entertainer of the Year honor in both 2006 and 2007. Keep On Walkin’ will continue this tradition and break new ground for the group. Band members Terry Eldredge, Jamie Johnson, and Terry Smith are vocally tighter than ever and mandolin ace Danny Roberts and new banjo player Aaron McDaris lead the charge. Keep On Walkin’ delivers timely, yet timeless, cutting edge songs with a deep rooted appreciation of soul and musicianship. “After five years of singing together, and especially the last three years of extensive touring, we think we’ve really been able to define our sound on this record,” said Grascals vocalist and guitarist Jamie Johnson. “The whole process of doing this album – from finding songs, to arranging them, recording and mixing – was relaxed and fun. We took our time so we could do things the way we wanted and treat each song with the care it deserved.” Posted 7.3.08
